CAS gave ABP Food Group a strong foundation for change

ABP wanted to transform their organisation and adopt Microsoft 365 (M365). This required a business case for change, so they approached Bytes for commercial support.

Our CAS team held several workshops with ABP to understand their business requirements, before building a commercial model that maximised the value of M365. This model enabled ABP to articulate the benefits of M365 and the business case was approved successfully.
